    I'm sure I've seen this exact topic before.

    But gel over foam here in the UK.

    I’m not a fan of either since switching to soaps. I preferred gel prior to discovering soap.

    I used to use both back when I hated shaving, so they both leave a bad taste in my mouth. "Neither" should have been a response option.

    Neither. I haven't used either in around 4 1/2 years. My vote is for either shaving Soap, or shaving Cream.

    I preferred shaving gel to shaving foam before I switched from cartridge razors to safety razors. Now, on the rare occasions I do use a canned product, I prefer barbasol shaving foam.

    If I went back to canned lather it would be gel. The gel performed better for me and seemed to last longer. I used Gillette Edge Gel .

    Barbasol Extra Moisturizing SC for me when I have to shave at 3am for work. Works great with my boar brush, and injector razor.

    With gel you massage the soap into the hairs to get foam, so i used to prefer gel.

    I donated my shaving gel and foam as i discovered classic soap and cream.

    Get yourself a stick of Arko, a tub of Proraso, and a tube of Palmolive. Then post a new survey.

    I used both and gel seemed to work a little better for my shave and I liked to buy Gillette if I was looking to restock when using my Gillette cartridge razors.
